Riders from distant cities have created a small but thriving scene in one of snowboarding's most remote ouposts.

Journey to Lesotho, South Africa's small neighbouring state, where riders from distant cities have created a small but thriving scene in one of the sport's most remote ouposts.
But, while their dedication is unquestionable, it's the story of Graham, one of the resorts true locals, that really inspires. I travel the world in search of those people for whom the very act of riding a snowboard represents a victory of passion over adversity.

René Eckert is a German cinematographer based in Auerbach. www.blickinsfreie.de
